If you're going to do an engine swap why not a 5.0? Unless you got this for a steal. I have a 4.0 and want a 5.0 baaaaaad

Just a suggestion look into a 8.8 axle swap. It would be pretty easy to snap the 7.5 with a stock 4.0 sohc. My friend in his 01 3.8v6 stang had a 7.5 with 3.73 gears and it was stock besides gears and he snapped it revving to high and droping the clutch.

7.5 and 8.8 are pretty much the same axle... on difference is the ring size and carrier size.. axles interchange between the 2
